The Best 13 Web Tools for Teachers

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning is back to you with another list of great educational web tools that teachers are ( or should be ) using. I know I have not posted in this section of my blog for a couple of weeks now but sometimes I get overwhelmed with the amount of work I have to do and things get piled up on me but I definitely end up doing all.

In Educational Web Tools section, I compile and review lists of web tools I gather from different sources online and provide them handy for  teachers and educators particularly those who, because of their time constraints or any other reason, do not have the time to spend online looking for web tools to try with their students or to use  for their professional development. The priority is always given to those new web tools that have recently been created but I so often include other tools as well. However, for today's post I am sharing with you a list of the best web tools for 2012. All of these tools have been nominated for Edublogs Award. Enjoy
